Consultation begins on local parks

A new consultation has been launched to gather views on two of the district’s award winning parks.

Happy Mount Park in Morecambe and Williamson Park in Lancaster were recently awarded the prestigious Green Flag status.

To ensure both parks continue to improve, visitors to both parks are being asked what they think of the parks’ facilities, views on recent improvements and what can be done to make them even better.

The survey results will be used to measure satisfaction with the parks, provide a better understanding of the needs of visitors, review recent changes and inform future plans.

Coun Brendan Hughes, Cabinet member with responsibility for parks and open spaces, said: “Happy Mount Park and Williamson Park are both visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year and are two of the district’s most popular attractions.

“They are a tremendous success and we’re keen to make sure they stay that way, as well as looking at ways we can make improvements.

“The aim of the survey is to identify where there are opportunities for further improvement so they can continue to delight visitors for generations to come.”
